Chest radiography serves a crucial role in imaging of the critically ill. Its uses include diagnosis and monitoring of commonly encountered pulmonary parenchymal and pleural space abnormalities. It is also important in evaluating monitoring and support devices and associated complications. CT, another useful imaging modality in select patients, can better characterize pulmonary parenchymal and pleural space disease.
